Swift Biosciences Accel-Amplicon Plus Cancer NGS Panels
Swift Biosciences has launched a suite of nine tumor-specific gene panels using its Accel-Amplicon technology. The Accel-Amplicon Plus Cancer NGS Panels enable detection of SNVs, copy number variants, and small indels. The company has launched four disease-focused panels for colorectal cancer, Lynch syndrome, lung cancer, and myeloid malignancies. In addition, it has also launched five gene panels, including one that focuses on comprehensive coverage of the TP53 gene, two BRCA-focused panels, an EGFR panel, and a pan-cancer panel. The panels are compatible with Illumina's sequencing instruments. Just 10 nanograms of sample input are required, and sample inputs can include DNA from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue and fine needle aspirates, as well as cell-free DNA. In addition, Swift has also launched its Swift Bioinformatics Resources, which include both open source and commercial bioinformatics tools to analyze NGS data.
